Tried the demo. Loved it. Bought the full version (a bargain!). Installed, working perfectly and really making me smile by giving life back to some much-loved 32-bit plug-ins. Awesome bit of development, thank you so much!
The pinnacle, perhaps, is Song For The Dead featuring Grohl's intro solo, borrowed in-part from Black Flag's Slip It In. The verse groove hits you like the crack-addled cousin of Foxey Lady, and Grohl's randomised fills and relentless single strokes at the end of the song makes this one of his greatest drum performances on record. Producer Eric Valentine famously tracked the kit with cymbal pads in place of metal, choosing to task Grohl with overdubbing them later for greater separation between the kit parts.
The drum sound is a contrast from what had come before, rid of the heavily-gated snares in favour of a more natural room sound. The isolated tracks really show the punchiness of the kick drum, the explosive crack of the snare and that huge room sound. 2b1af7f3a8
